This is my mother-in-law Margita Berger. The picture was taken in their house in the village of Torda in Banat, Serbia, sometime in the 1920s. My husband came from a rural Jewish family that was not at all religious. He had a drastically different upbringing than I did. For example, his father was inclined to drink a lot, and socialized with the local gypsies, things that my father never did.
